Uber Is Said to Aim for I.P.O. Valuation of Up to $100 Billion

[ad_1]

Uber gave the first sign on Wednesday of how big its initial offering might be, telling some investors that its stock sale might value it at up to $100 billion, people briefed on the matter said.

The number, which is below a $120 billion valuation that had been floated by investment bankers, highlights the size of the ride-hailing giant as it prepares to embark its market debut, the biggest in recent years. Its shares are expected to begin trading on the public markets next month.

The revelation also follows the I.P.O. last month of Uber’s main North American competitor, Lyft, whose shares have dropped more than 15 percent from their offering price. Another Silicon Valley darling, the digital pin board Pinterest this week set pricing expectations for its own market debut below its last private fund-raising round.
